X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, announce that Lumiscaphe SA, editor of the Patchwork 3D real-time visualization software for photorealistic 3D prototypes, will integrate the Appearance Exchange Format (AxF™) into the upcoming version of Patchwork 3D software. Developed by X-Rite, AxF is a vendor-neutral format that enables full communication of visual appearance data in a single, editable file in order to improve the virtualization process. Patchwork 3D support of AxF allows users to incorporate a new level of realism into their virtual designs.

Our customers are very demanding as far as the quality of the visual aspect of their products and materials are concerned. Our support for AxF is an important development for Patchwork 3D and our customers, as it will allow them to create increasingly accurate virtual presentations.”
